Facts about Dentures

Dentures are not for everybody and not all dentures are created equally. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth through a series of moldings and castings that your dentist performs. Here are a few facts to help you know more about dentures:
  • Dentures don’t last forever
  • Adhesives play a role in denture fit and comfort
  • Just because dentures are fake, they don’t have to look that way
  • Daily care and cleaning of new dentures is very important to maintain dental health
  • 1 in 5 American adults wear some type of dentures
  • Dentures are softer than your natural teeth
  • Many new denture wearers experience anxiety during the transition period
Unless you choose to have your dentures secured with dental implants, they will not be held securely in position and can easily be displaced. It is a major transition to begin wearing and using false teeth as opposed to your natural teeth and unfortunately, many people find the experience trying and discouraging at first. As with all prosthetics, practice makes perfect. However when made well, dentures and other tooth replacement methods can be as comfortable and easy as 1, 2, 3. Dr. Garcia’s expertise and experience allow this to be a reality.
